completely off the table. medicare don't touch it. medicaid, do ent touch it. in fact, paul ryan did work with alice rivlin on something like proposed for medicare and left out of the final proposal. if you're going to tackle it, tackle it all at once, because, again, you have to worry about the setup, oh, tax reform and we do end up raising tax revenue, but then they end up not doing anything about the looming true monsters that are on the horizon for the country. >> neil: adam? >> neil, i think you put paul ryan on the hot seat and he adequately squirmed out of it. if you're in a boat and the boat is sinking and someone hands you a bucket, no, thank you, i don't need that bucket i'm trying to get the bucket over here. you take the bucket and start bailing and work on the problem after that. >> neil: the fact that the president saw the bucket and just didn't even look at the bucket, but turned an i way from the bucket, is any less-- >> no, i totally agree, as critical of the president ignoring the advice he got from his own commission and critical of ryan not being willing to-- i wasn't
's not. paul ryan said, no, it's not. that was a quiet game changer. >> it might be. i don't know who you talk to in the tea party -- neil: your tea party. >> you say "your tea party" like i know -- neil: i talked to many of the 83 newly collected congressmen in 2010, many of whom were tea party, many of whom nixed the budget deal last year because it included closing tax loopholes and credits because they deemed that a tax increase. you do not. >> first of all, not to say that toes -- say those 80 are tea party -- >> i didn't say that. you're treating me like president obama. >> maybe 20 # of them. neil: okay, a good many saw it as a tax increase, but you don't. >> i don't. those are politicians, not tea party. neil: way are you? >> i'm just a citizen. you -- neil: there we go. okay, do you get a sense here that this is all going to fly well with the entire, say, conservative movement? including tea parties, everything else, might hold their nose because he's better than, let's say, the president. >> i think that's true. there's really only one thing heard that bothered me last night whe

a year. huge waste of brain power. so yes, tax simplification is absolutely essential. paul ryan, the vice presidential candidate, has an even better plan than romney has, and that's junk the code, have two rates after exemptions, 10% above $100,000, 25%. that would get the economy moving. >> what mike was talking about, all of these tax cuts just add to the tax code, they don't make it simpler or smaller. >> i can get behind a simpler tax code, but i'm still suffering from the ripple in the force i felt when david asman told me i was right. i'm going to lose my liberal union card. steve pointed he likes the vice president's candidate program the president's candidate. all of you republicans seem to bant paul ryawant paul ryan for, but he's not. >> i heard you say no about the idea of tax simplification. why is that not a good thing? >> we're all basing this argument predicated on lower tax rates are going to stimulate things. companies are not using the industrial capacity they have now. they laid off workers because there's no demand. cut their taxes, it doesn't mean they're go
, but this number floored me, spoon 71% of democrs feel this way, i caught up with paul ryan, on the issue, maybe that is something that mitt romney was trying to clarify on this idea much spreading the wealth, end tax cuts. from ryan earlier. >> i was a little bit confused yesterday, congressman, when mitt romney was talking about the tax cuts he was invisioning, they would not be as big as you think, when you factor out you know, how we would phase out exemptions and allowances and deductions it may not be the big tax cut a lot of people were looking forward to. is he trying to brace us for some bette bitter news. >> no, lower tax rate, triggers economic growth, when people ask about, whose tax loopholes are you go after? we say by closing tax shelters for higher income earners, that allows us to lower tax rates for everyone. middle income tax payers get higher take home pay, businesses get lower tax rates that helps theme compete globally, and create job, by denying tax shelters to hire income earning that means we can lower tax rates on everyone without losing revenue, we get more revenue bec
shirt because mitt romney and paul ryan is like wrought -- wearing the kkk shirt. she should not where the republican shirt in the democratic school. she should be fired. charles: then she went into the hall and encourage them to be up superbly and mentally? >> she gathered other teachers and students to explain how the shirt is like the kkk. she says she was joking. she has a sick sense of humor or is incredibly and tolerant. she should be fired. charles: all of the above. we have to draw the line. the chicago teachers strike a were making more than the parents say we will not teach them until we get more money. when do the appearance step up? you don't want your child to be bullied by the teachers. >> of course, this teacher is the obama's supporter. not surprising he constantly bows to the teacher union thugs and bad teachers are rewarded. if there republican is elected there is school choice. they will be rewarded it on the value they create. that is a threat to to teachers like this. charles: that they will probably come of this? will there be any sort of disciplinary action? >> j

are implementing the debt over the coming years. neil: that is one of the reasons that paul ryan did not vote for it he dodged the tough decision away. he wanted it to be even deeper and address these entitlement costs. but critics say that he is not effectively ceded mr. do you think he does that were changes that initiative tomorrow night? >> i think the governor romney is going to lay out a compelling case our debt problems in the risk of enormous tax hikes on the population that would stagnate growth and put us on a path with increased spending. rising standards of living, and contrasting that with president obama's vision of a social welfare state, moving towards this competent socio- economic expectations. neil: you know the problem may be that mitt romney has, and i mean this in a positive way, he is too smart for words. in other words, he has the iq argument down, but not necessarily the ronald reagan approach out there. so he always sounds like he's walking and talking about it and never explaining about basic human being terms with choking on a 16 trillion-dollar debt means. so it g
of the shane paul ryan is one thing when he first unleashes him here to what switches smart but it is still piling up voters in record numbers continue to pile up their ballots that looks dumb especially most will have the long before election day that for the moment barack obama looks good. that does not stick but it does not matter for them. why the romney campaign does not leave a minute to spare. air and i was startled by the numbers but they need to get the ads out and fast? >> look at i would this week the obama campaign says more than 100,000 ballots are from democrats versus 40,000 republicans. the obama campaign will hit them again and again. neil: i don't know the record but generally it is reflective of the moment look at the polls in favor the president. if you are mitt romney you don't have the moment to spare. >> you need to make a move quick. early voters are the hard partisans mostly the vote will not change voting today universe sixth. as strong as the president's early voting program is as he invented the wheel so does the romney campaign and track it thoroughly. i expecte
and replace. paul ryan is by his side. they have a plan not to hurt anyone 55 and over but as important to look out for the future generations. i have talked to governor romney on multiple occasions. gerri: i really think the conversation about obamacare and look at the polling is that net romney is leading. 47% vs. 43%. it did not start off that way. ball right and went to florida and was there with his mom. did that make the difference ? >> i think it did. do we want a society free enterpriser based on government centered focus? that is the clear choice. 47 million americans are on food stamps. that is unacceptable. one out of six winning in poverty. that is what we have seen under obama. romney and ryan have the vision for our picture. gerri: when you drill down where florida is unemployment is above the national average. a foreclosure rates is one of the worst in the nation. what do these candidates need to say? what is the most important issue? >> jobs and the economy. our governor tries to bring business with jobs and employing people but constantly fighting the federal government
been complaining directly to the romney folks about paul ryan. why isn't he out there more? they accused the romney campaign of muzzling paul ryan to the point where ryan had to intercede personally, had to assure people, i know this for a fact, that he is not being muzzled. and not going out there. they feel they haven't used ryan enough. they feel the romney campaign has been too tentative attacking the president on the economy. let's face it, talking about a double-dip recession here. ben bernanke says we're not in recession. he basically put on the printing press of money because all the numbers are showing we're heading to recession. we have bad unemployment numbers. people are dropping out of the workforce. guess what? all we're talking about is mitt romney and bain capital all this nonsense. they believe that some of that, and you know, just so much you can blame on liberal bias. they believe some of that problem with not getting message out is romney's fault. that he is not out there. he is not pushing the agenda in terms of the weak economy and foreign policy as we
obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. now, here is what paul ryan said to chris wallace on fox news sunday. >> their response was slow. it was confused, it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know that it's a planned tres attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be tragedy in and of itself. the fact that it's part of a bigger picture the obama foreign policy is literally unravelling before our eyes on the tv screens. stuart: and look at this one, the white house is trying to pass through 450 million dollars in aid in egypt supposed to help the muslim brotherhood to transform into democracy. the republicans in congress are trying to block it. the issue in cairo, warning to missionaries living especially women in cairo, should take precautions to protect themselves. and time is money. 30 seconds, here is what else we've got for you this monday morning, the latest polls show president obama with a growing lead, especially in the swing states, but there might be a silver lining in the polls for mitt rom
by mitt romney and paul ryan. joining us now is congressman peter welsh, who joins us frequently on "varney & company." welcome back, good to see you. >> good to be here. i'm sure we're going to agree that the middle class has indeed been buried. income down about $4,000 in the the last four years for middle america. i say it's because of the pills of stimulus, a massive government spending, and heavy regulation simply has not produced a robust economy which would raise the middle glass. it's subdued the middle class. what's your explanation. >> well, i mean, that's the debate between governor romney and president obama. i mean, you're right. and that's the middle class is really struggling. something that's been true really for 30 years, when you look past what's happened in the middle class the last 30 years, it's basically treading water and it's gotten much tougher in the past four years, and this big debate between the two sides is whether it was, the bush policies, that preceded that president obama that was a major contributing factor or is-- a the romney campaign is tryin
nominee paul ryan seizing onnthe commission to launch attacks at the democratic ticket. >> feature if you turn on the ty you can see that the obama foreign-policy is unraveling before our eyes. it's not just an isolated incident where we lost four americans in libya. that's tragic. but it is part of a bigger story of the unraveling of this agenda all over the world. we have distanced our ally, israel, we are not advancing our interests in the middle east, and the president is promising we will have these devastating cuts to our national defense. ashley: meanwhile the white house engaged in a series of secret talks on the attack on al qaeda. it included the possibility of unilateral military action against al qaeda in the region. yet still american diplomats on the ground in libya denied additional security to ensure their safety. we take up all this right here tonight, we have retired lieutenant colonel, and also, moody's chief economist on why wall street might not care who wins this election. america's security and the obama administration's handling of foreign affairs quickly becoming
republicans that it will a lot to. mitt romney loses, paul ryan will still be the budget chairman. democrats can line up all these big spending initiatives if they want to, but the fact is that the house is still going to be majority republican. if republicans don't take back the senate is going to be the same situation that we have ad for the past two years. i would say that they're going to go as far as trying to decorate the office before they have it. we might see another turnaround election in the year 2014 like we did in 2010 if they continue to push this big spending big government. neil: you're not giving up on spending. it almost sounded like you were. >> well, i am just simply saying if they are going to go with decorating the office. neil: thank you very, very much. don't look now, but he is back. remember caught 20 years later. back with a vengeance, and a new warning. deep in debt. ross perot fears we are easy date to be taken down. a former clinton press secretary, debate commission on those warnings from a guy who two decades ago almost up into the presidential race. very goo
's what paul ryan said. i can't explain it to you. i can't explain it to you. takes too music is a universal language. but when i was in an accident... i was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never misd a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. ♪ neil: welcome back, everybody. david axelrod talking to a throng of supporters, the president's campaign manager, probably saying mitt romney won the debate -- not. i'm with senator marco rubio, the fine state of florida, and you an interesting point that forget about who won or lost. this helps rejazz the base. you didn't use those terms, but those who might have had concerns, this was slipping away from the romney campaign, this release them of that? >> it's more than that. the base, the conservatives, the believers are frustrated with how long the
heads off to wisconsin. governor romney and his running mate paul ryan will be in virginia today. we will be watching the polls to see if romney gets any post-debate bounce. dagen and connell, back to you. connell: peter thanks. still live for us in denver this morning. dagen: for more reaction to the debate, let's bring in jim pinkerton, he's a fox news contributor. your heart has to be warmed by the amount that taxes were discussed last night. >> i was amazed. look that was a fierce debate and i think governor romney clearly won. it seems like all the pundits agree on that. but what was remarkable as you said was that there was so much agreement on this one issue of the corporate income tax. they both said get the top rate from 35, which is the highest in the world, down to 25, and who knew there would be this island of agreement and consensus amidst a pretty tough presidential campaign. connell: a lot of numbers, as you say, corporate taxes coming down, and then this whole debate, the first part of it was spent on this idea that governor romney's proposing a quote unquote 5 trilli
getting information from vice presidential candidate paul ryan on his tax plan. >> it is lower by 2013. >> how much does it cost? >> it is revenue neutral. [ talking over each other ] >> we will get to that. >> let me just tell you. it would take me too long to go through all the math. dagen: it would take too long to go through all the math. what does david stockman think of this? he is author of the triumph of politics. great to see you, as always. is that a mistake or the right way to go? >> it is pathetic. this is nixon's secret plan for years later. if they think they can cut tax rates and close these loopholes and expenditures, they have to name them. you have to be honest with the american people. they are being totally dishonest. somehow, they think that people will buy it. dagen: dishonest is a big word. mitt romney has alluded towards meeting to let congress -- this will be a comprehensive tax reform. >> if you do not tell the american people it darkly where you will get all of this revenue so you can get a tax break to everybody, and you are not preparing the way, not gettin
-term. that's the plan that i put forward, and by the way, the idea came not even from paul ryan or senator wyden who's a co-author of the bill in the senate, but also from bill clinton's chief of staff. this is an idea that's been around a long time. hey, let's see if we can't get competition into the medicare world so that people can get the choice of different plans at lower costs, better quality. i believe in competition. >> moderator: okay. obama: jim, if i can just respond very quickly. first of all, every study has shown that medicare has lower administrative costs than private insurance does, which is why seniors are generally pretty happy with it. and private insurers have to make a profit. nothing wrong with that, that's what they do. and so you've got higher administrative costs plus profit on top of that, and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney's proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere. and when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies. and over time if tradition
